Greetings and salutations dear readers!
Forgive me that I disappeared for months. No, I didn’t go to Avalon. I made up my mind to go to graduate school next fall for Medieval History, and thus I was very busy getting research completed for that process. It was really a decision of WHEN, more than an IF, because this has been a dream of mine for a long time. But once that decision was made I then had to find the right programs at the right schools. Let me tell you the process has not been easy, but a very rewarding challenge nonetheless. I’m so excited to begin this new chapter! Dr. Valkyrie here I come!
I also started taking classes in French and German (the former for review, the latter as a beginner) for grad school as well. So between applications, language classes, and work, I have been quite busy of late. Indeed, I may be spotty on this site until at least January, but it’s for a good cause, I assure you.
In other news, I finished a period accurate Viking gown, including leather shoes, and I will be posting a blog about that shortly. However, I have two lectures on Viking history to give this week, so bear with me while I prepare for that. But soon my description of that project will be up, with pictures!
That’s all for now. Thank you to all of you, following or not, who have visited this site in the past few months! You are the reason I write this blog. I hope it continues to be beneficial for you.
